Important Notice Please Read - CLICK HERE

Swimmers Guide is not connected with any of the more than 20,000+ facilities listed on this site in any way. We cannot tell you the pools’ opening and closing times; we cannot tell you about the availability and cost of swimming lessons; we cannot help you find your children’s lost goggles or bathing suits.

We can and do try to give you reliable information about the pools, their locations, their access policies, and their single-visit or casual swimming prices. Where possible, we include email addresses and hypertext links to the pools’ own official websites, and links to the websites of the clubs and teams that swim there. Look to those resources within each listing for more detailed information.

The data in each listing is under continual review and is revised whenever the site’s editors become aware of a change but, with more than 20,000 listings, a complete, periodic review of every listing takes about three years to complete; in many places, prices will change two or three times before we have a chance to check the pool’s official website again.

For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us. There is an "Edit" button on just about every line of every listing, click on the edit button to tell us what needs to be changed. Please consider checking the listings of the pools you regularly use at home or when traveling, as your knowledge may be helpful to someone else who is unfamiliar with your area and visiting for the first time.

To our English users: For reasons described in the FAQ, county names shown the listings in England are the cities' and towns' historic counties, not necessarily the counties they are assigned to now.

Facility Reviews

Excellent pool. Very clean. Plenty of open lanes weekday mornings and weekends. The staff speak no English, but the system is easy to figure out. Be sure you bring a cap and “indoor” flip flops (so don’t wear them to the pool from the outside - that rule applies to all pools in Poland).
Clean, nice pool. No clock or flags, though. Kids’ team swims during lunch leaving only one lane for laps; it got a bit crowded…
On entering this modern facility, call first at the cloakroom directly to the right of the cashier and deposit your overcoat and outdoor shoes. Pay the cashier (you will be asked whether you want to pay up front for either one or two hours) and receive in return a locker key on a chipped wristband. Use the chipped wristband to release the turnstile, find your locker, get changed, and you’re ready to go. The staff had no English (or French or German), but kindly provided me with a male attendant to walk me through the process. On leaving, hand the chipped wristband to the cashier who will check whether you’ve exceeded the time for which you’ve paid upfront (in which case you’ll be charged for the balance) and get the cloakroom attendant to return your deposited stuff.

On my early morning visits, the pool was fully laned. Although there was no speed differentiation, there were so few swimmers (I never than more than one other person sharing a lane with me) that this didn’t present a problem. The use of swimming caps and competition swimwear appeared to be the norm, if not obligatory, likewise showering with soap before entering the water.
